Cebolla Creek

I joined Peter for a day on Cebolla Creek, which is a small stream that drains Slumgullion Pass.  It generally has a lot of brush and trees along the banks, so you have to work in tight quarters to get a fly to the fish.  Although most of the fish are small (maybe 8 inches or so), there are some big fish in there too.  I was fortunate and landed a nice 20-inch rainbow and a beautiful 16-inch cutthroat that Peter and I cast to for about an hour before he finally took one of my flies.

In this picture you can really see the "cuts" that give the cutthroat its name

When we got back to town, we decided we needed to do some more fishing, so we went out to a pond and caught some nice brook trout, like this one
